From “I burn for you” and the “chais longue” to the “old fashioned romance, sexual wellness brand LELO UK’s sex expert Kate Moyle has given her guide to to perfecting three bodice-ripping bonks.
I Burn For You
As fans of Netflix Bridgerton will know, this is Daphne’s famous line to Simon before he replies, “I want to show you more” in one of the show’s most notable sex scenes.
“On the theme of building desire and arousal, this position is about building anticipation, tease and tension all which contribute to preparing you emotionally and physically for sex,” explains Kate.
To perfect the position, she notes partners but either sit or lie facing one another and make a mutual agreement to avoid touching the parts of the body that are normally associated with sex, such as the genitals, breasts and bum.
“You can set a timer or an alarm clock for 20 minutes, and spend that time touching, kissing, teasing all over the rest of the body and then when the timer goes off that’s your permission to include all body parts”.
According to the sexpert, this move is great move for mixing up routines and slowing things down.
“So often in our modern busy lives we are always rushing things and the extended foreplay and build up is a great pleasure enhancer,” she adds.
The Chais Longue
While adventures couples may think they’ve tried it all in the bedroom, we’d place a bet that they’d never tried a sex position to replicate the shape of a classic Regency-era furniture favourite – the chais longue.
“One partner lies on their side propped up on their elbow, the other then lies in front of them in a spooning-style position,” explains Kate.
She notes the perks of this slow and sensual position is that it offers up a lot of added opportunity for kissing down the neck, which she adds can be a “real erogenous zone” for lots of people.
Old Fashioned Romance
Bridgerton’s intimacy coach has recently revealed how sex scenes are filmed – and why a deflated netball is the secret to happy humping.
So, if you’re after recreating a similar connection and intimacy with lots of eye contact, then the old fashioned romance may just be the sex position for you.
“This is a great position for mutual pleasure with more of a grinding than a thrusting motion,” explains Kate.
“Both partners are in the same position mirroring each other, so sitting with legs bent leaning back on your arms (imagine an M shape).”
“You then move together and one of you will put your legs over the others to allow you to move against each other.”
She notes how every couple will need to adjust until they find a position that works best and is most comfortably for them.
